Slugs don't eat my Hostas (smirk, smirk) 'cos they are surrounded by pea shingle, which I don't think the slugs like that much.

Tracey... I agree with you soooo much; young chap designing my website has about 20 photos from my portfolio and didn't respond to either a text or email for a week

I was incandescent...had he emigrated to Tierra del Fuego? with all the evidence of the last 30 years of my work? I finally caught up with him...'Oh I didn't get your text (Oh right, and the dog ate your homework!) ...and I was away for the weekend...'

You may be expecting too much, too early. can't see what area of the country you are in (it is always useful to put your general area in your details to help people advising you on plants and planting)

Do you know the difference between knowledge and wisdom gentle reader?

Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.

Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

Tracey, 'Old rocking chair's got me, cane by my side...fetch me that Jimson weed or I'll tan your hide....' sung by Paul Robeson and others of that era, if you want a song about being older, (but not necessarily wiser.)

Personally, being frightfully ancient, I want to behave fairly badly in my old age, because I am wise enough to know that that is the best course of action

I was at Asda this a.m. no prices on all their various sacks of compost, bark etc. Went inside the shop; no staff except security; told them no prices on sacks; Oh we'll sort that out for you; 30 mins later, left shop; no prices on sacks. How do they expect to sell stuff with no prices?

Often when I go into a large supermarket and find this type of situation, I end up acting as a temporary manager. Today, I've god a gold id by dose and I don't feel like being id charge.

I need your advise, thanks
